Sri Sri Guru a Wussie

File under: Sri Loser

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, (not the one who played at Woodstock,) turned tail and ran when challenged by a rationalist in India. In his own account, he claims to "choose silence over conflict." In our account, he wussed out bigtime and got made a biotch by his debating opponent, Javed Akhtar, making Sri Sri's article little more than a feeble attempt to save some face after it got rhetorically pimp-slapped at the India Today Conclave's discussion on spirituality, ‘Halo or Hoax?’

Have you ever met Sri or Sri or know anything about art of living i wonder. because Sri Sri has been giving answers, either by actions or words, to the points raised by Akthar since long, even before the conclave. anyways, if you had ever attended any of his satsangs you would know that he doesn't need to save face.
still its your right to have such opinion. Enjoy it.
Regards

Sri Sri completely ducked around the question. Resorting to the nondual dodge he used only shows a lack of rhetorical fortitude. Maybe he's not intelligent enough to present his views in the face of dissent, or maybe he's just lazy. Either way, he's certainly no Shankara, who would have easily handed the rationalist a defeat.
